The Clinton Foundation and Russian Uranium Deal: A Recap


There is a darker story about the real inner-workings and goals of the Clinton Foundation. It is believed that the foundation has been used to funnel money  to their international charitable organization. Since Hillary Clinton decided to run for President of the United States, and the betting odds for this election are anybody's guess, there have been controversies over criminal investigations re-surfacing and past scandals. The Benghazi attack on September 11th, 2012, the State Department emails, and deletions of 33,000 emails from her personal server at home in New York. These scandals are exposing cover-ups and corruptible activities at the highest level.

The Clinton Foundation supposedly focuses on giving back to different charities and noble causes. Clinton supporters believe that the Clinton Foundation concentrates on the fundamental basis of redistributing the money to associations, charities, and other organizations in fighting for good and moral causes around the world. Simply put: They try and make the world a better place.

That being said, there are doubts in regards to the motives of the foundation. The Atlantic reports, “What is it? Since the Clintons have a long history of controversies, there are any number of past scandals that continue to float around, especially in conservative media: Whitewater. Troopergate. Paula Jones. Monica Lewinsky. Travelgate. Vince Foster’s suicide. Juanita Broaddrick.” (28 October 2016).

Since the first appearances of the Clintons onto the political scene, there have been numerous scandals involving the Clintons, and how they conducted their political career for the last 30 to 40 years. As a matter of fact, the continuous stream of daily released emails from WikiLeaks is a testimony of what was going on behind the scenes while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.Photo: thefederalist.com

The news media is talking on a daily basis in the surfacing of new developments about the real agenda of Clinton and her clandestine activities behind the Clinton Foundation. Many assume that the Clintons concentrated on acquiring cash flow—no matter how dangerous or unethical it was, as both enemies and allies from the Clinton Foundation have been donating to the foundation for seemingly-unscrupulous reasons. In the latest of a series of troubling revelations, Iran, Russia, and the United States are implicated in a cash flow scandal over a uranium deal.

 Iran has benefited during that time to enrich its uranium, despite numerous sanctions imposed by the United States, and was secretly acquiring more enriched uranium through the pay-for-play. While Hillary Clinton had unrestricted access to various national security doors, Russia announced to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One. Shortly after Hillary Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank linking to the Kremlin—which was promoting stock in Uranium One.

In April 2015, the New York Times wrote that “Some of the connections between Uranium One and the Clinton Foundation were unearthed by Peter Schweizer, a former fellow at the right-leaning Hoover Institution and author of the forthcoming book Clinton Cash.” In this shocking but not surprising twist about the real intentions of Hillary Clinton’s affairs, her time as the Secretary of State has allowed foreign donors from Saudi Arabia, Iran, Turkey, and others Middle Eastern countries to partake in the successful pay-for-play scheme. The Clinton Foundation has been receiving and accepting donations from unfriendly allies to the United States. The Times continues by adding that “Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.” (23 April 2015)

Newsweek reports, “Enemies of Hillary Clinton waiting to discredit her bid for the White House are likely to seize on news that one of the biggest benefactors to the Clinton Foundation has been trading with Iran and may be in breach of US sanctions imposed on the country.” (4 April 2015).

The Clinton Foundation has been utilized as a machine in building its cash flow empire regardless of the repercussions. When it comes to the genuine and innocent nature of the foundation’s real engagement and purpose, it would seem immoral, unethical, and a significant threat to national security worldwide. There are less than three days left before the official election for the next president, and more breaking news stories could emerge regarding the Clinton Foundation–how it was used to enrich the Clinton family dynasty, and how much dirty and laundering money was in effect transferred to the foundation.
